HOW IT ALL STARTED
Dave Edwards was ready for the world shortly after graduating high school, and he wasted no time rolling up his sleeves and getting to work! He married his high school sweetheart, Jody, and started working at McIntyre Oldsmobile Cadillac selling cars.
The owner, Bob McIntyre, saw a spark in young Dave and knew he wanted to coach him for success in the automotive industry. On his first day selling cars, Dave called everyone he knew and invited them to come see him. He sold his first car that day thanks to a referral from a friend at the Council Bluffs Fire Department. Dave was proud of his accomplishment and in that moment, he knew he was destined for a career in the auto industry.
In most circumstances, it can take years for an individual to be recognized and promoted. Potential is identified early on at Edwards Auto Group, allowing people to develop and improve their careers quickly.
The group's diversity enables us to keep up with the industry changes and meet the needs of the customers. Buyers have traded in campers, ATVs, motorbikes, imports, and many other vehicles. In the early years, the group even traded cattle and band equipment. Todd Edwards played the baritone in band and had no idea why; now he understands...his father bought it on trade. “No matter what a customer comes in wanting to buy, we can move inventory around to help them get top dollar for their trade,” said Dave Edwards.
Much can be said about the family business that began more than 35 years ago, but one thing has remained consistent over the years: we are here to meet and exceed the expectations of our customers.
